House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths
- english, spanish
Although we make our home in Nashville Tennessee, we have rented 2-3 times a year through VRBO for the past 8 years. Through our wonderful experiences we learned what we needed, wanted and really appreciated in a vacation rental. In 2008 we decided to cross over to 'the other side' and become owners. We looked at southeast beach properties and Rocky Mountain ski resorts. In the end we fell in love with the breathtaking coast of Pemaquid Point Penninsula in New Harbor Maine. We tell our friends and family 'our vacation home is up in the middle of the woods on the ocean in Maine'. It truly is the best of all worlds. All the benefits of the ocean (can you say lobster?!) without the stifling heat. As an avid runner Bon loves logging the miles on the quiet tree lined roads while Bill fishes for striper and blues off the rocky outcropping on the beach. The kids explore the bay and outer islands by kayak looking for seals. We all love walking down to the lighthouse and having breakfast in the restaurant while watching the crashing surf. And of course there are the morning coffee, and evening cocktail walks along the groomed shore path. So calming, so peaceful, so absolutely wonderful. We have done absolutely everything possible to make our home exactly how we would want a rental for our family. We book solid, with many repeat clients, up to a year in advance as many folks book the next year upon check out.
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose New Harbor
You have looked at or even stayed at the rest, now stay at the best! If you want THEE best view and a clean and crisp home this is the one for you. In the winter of 2016 we sealed the basement walls and floor and run a dehumidifier 7/24. When you open the basement door take a big sniff, nice and fresh and this carries over to the whole house! many houses up here smell musty and moldy. Bill is very allergic to mold so all the furniture, window treatments and hardwood floors as opposed to carpet make our home crisp and clean.
What makes this House unique
April, our meticulous cleaning team leader, is married to Shaun the Lobstahman. he delivers fresh out of the water to the door live or steamed (not boiled) seven days a week cheaper than Subway sandwiches. And David Cheney delivers the best oysters in America to the door and puts on a shucking demonstration. Then there is the ocean front spa for 6 with our spectacular sunsets. Oh, the hammock too and life on the deck.

Red Door to Paradise
‘Seas the Day’ is such a wonderful get away home. The three bedrooms, kitchen and dining room have large windows and sliding doors that overlook the beauty of the ocean. On the day we arrived, the air conditioning was on. We actually shut it off for the week so we could enjoy the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves. The kitchen is fully stocked including a coffeemaker for your early morning wake up. No sleeping in, too much beauty to enjoy!! Appliances are updated and high end. Robes are provided for guests along with linens and towels. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit one evening making s’mores, yes, I said fire pit - a bonus to your stay. The home also included an outdoor hot tub. Did I mention a hammock and a glider for relaxing or reading a book, or watching the beautiful sunsets. So many good memories this home now holds for us. Definitely would recommend walking through that red door and make your own memories.
Everything was great. Hot tub was used often by my wife. Naps were taken in the hammock. Had fund playing with the kids in the big backyard right on the water. Would definitely recommend.
Fantastic stay; wonderfully maintained home with gorgeous views and a great location from which to visit many of Maine’s Coastal attractions. We hope to be priveleged enough to return!
Perfect Maine Vacation Location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your comfortable, well-equipped beautiful home. The setting was beautiful! The fireplace was an especially welcome surprise ... made for a cozy stay inside one evening.
Sean brought us lobster a couple of times.......delicious and a great value! On one delivery he brought his young daughter who we adored......almost made us feel like neighbors! Loved watching the seagulls dine on the leftovers the next morning.
We found the people of Maine to be helpful and accommodating. We had a fantastic week of relaxation and building pleasant memories in your home! Hope to make it back some day to see the next phase of construction. What an amazing transformation you've done in the short time you've had this home. Thanks for sharing!

A True Gem
My family (with two young kids) just had a wonderful week long stay at Bill and Bon's Seas the Day home. The house is even better in person than it appears in the pictures. The house was immaculate and well stocked with whatever we needed. There are stunning views of John's Bay from rooms throughout the house. Bill gives his "Epistle" in advance of your visit and it details everything you could need to know about the house and community including all the amenities in proximity to the home. As soon as we arrived, Bill reached out to walk us through how things work. We simply reviewed the Epistle each morning to pick our daily activities. I couldn't recommend highly enough.
Marty, thank you for the kind words. Clients like you who embrace the "Seas The Day Experience" make our hard work worth while. We do hope you return. B&B
The perfect Maine getaway!
Our family had a wonderful week at this house. We enjoyed the beautiful location and gorgeous sunsets over the water every evening. The hot tub and hammock were wonderful for relaxing. Lobster was delivered to our door by a local lobsterman and was such a treat. Since each bedroom had its own bathroom, everyone had their own space and privacy. Pemaquid Lighthouse and New Harbor are just minutes away. It was the perfect rental for our family and we can’t wait to return.
Thank you Huber family. You were the perfect first time clients and we certainly hope you return many times in years to come! Sean enjoyed delivering your right out of the water lobstah. wishing you Seas The Day dreams!
